Xperia Companion 1.1.24.0_1Sony Mobile has updated the Xperia Companion computer application to version 1.1.24.0 and brought various improvements. First of all, Sony has widened support to include compatibility with all Sony Xperia models back to the Xperia J. The newest version also allows users to back-up their Xperia device to a computer, along with a restore function.

Another new feature is the ability to transfer music to your Xperia device. The Settings menu now includes a new option allowing you to toggle whether the Xperia Companion app shows in the notification area once your computer starts. If you want to download the utility click here.

    Sony don’t forget about Mac users too !

  • Sony should add a new choice to change the language !

  • I assume backup/restore is not a complete phone backup, but only a subset of things like messages, call log, etc.? I think this is what they’ve offered before. I’d be amazed if it was anything like iOS/iTunes full phone backup.

    I did a backup to test and it seems that any app which can be backed up by adb backup or Helium are included on it. Sadly, some apps explicitly disables backup on their manifests, those apps are excluded…

    I just downloaded this today and used it to update my Z3Compact to Android 6.0.1. I thought, it felt more user-friendly, frankly I couldn’t complain. It did what it’s supposed to do backup my phone then updated it without any hassles. I’m happy about this tool.

  • muhkuhap

    I can just say: F$$K those Apps!

  • Branko

    How is the control over what apps to backup ? Can you select them individually, or is just all or nothing ? Is the internal sdcard and that data also backed up ?

    Works on Sony Z1s, so why not just update this cellphone too
    Marshmallow then. Damn you T-Mobile!!!!!!!

  • SRI_LANKA_GodFather

    Now it’s available. Today I had that pop up message.
    But does not depend on where you are….It depends on where your phone from. My one was a Taiwan make as I got to know. Check your one’s country.
    Check your region of the phone by entering the following:
    *#*#7378423#*#*
    in the dialler.
    And note that number and check it with XperiFirm app. Check the country related to that number and see whether that country has 6.0 Update.
    If not you have to wait further.
    Happy hunting !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gihan kavinda de silva

    Yes..i got it today too..and i love it..

    With 6.0.1 there’s no more PC connection via wi-fi support, here’s another useful function killed by an update. ._.

  • fried_egg

    with less and less chance of another psp type device i can see “media go” being phased out… hence the building of a new pc companion that can do music uploads?

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    You can choose which apps you want to backup, it’ll include their obb data if the app uses it. About internal SD Card, you can backup photos, videos and music, other files are excluded…

    That is why slut’s keep coming back for more…

  • hazy leftie

    Xperia Companion can’t detect my older Xperia phone and PC Companion doesn’t work anymore on my PC. What’s going on? I want to transfer backup contacts list from my PC to my phone and I can’t. Anyone can help?

  • Roy Haryadi

    no setting to transfer music to sdcard, i use Xperia E1 and Xperia Companion on Mac. but only show my internal storage. no any preferences to change internal to sdcard, i use sony bridge for mac its more option and i can save music to sdcard. but the problem is not all music can transfer to my xperia :|
